real.exe stops with forrtl: severe (64): input conversion error, unit -5


New member
I am using WRFv3.9.1. I am running 3 domain simulation. WPS runs and produces met_em files without any problem. However, when I run real.exe the program runs for a while, wrfbdy_d01 and wrfinput_d01 get created but the program stops with this message

metgrid input_wrf.F first_date_input = 2017-12-30_12:00:00
metgrid input_wrf.F first_date_nml = 2017-12-24_00:00:00

I have checked all rsl files, but I am not able to figure out what is causing this error.

My namelist files and rsl files are attached.

Please help.....

Since V3.9.1 is 5 years old now, can you try using the latest version of WRF (V4.4) and let me know if you still see the same problem? Thanks!
